Glen begins his radio program this weekend by discussing the negative effects that "Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) have on the Pennsylvania economy. Glen also comments on the new national union rule approved by the National Mediation Board (not voted on by Congress) that makes it easier for unions to organize in the airline and railroad industries. The bottom line is that if we want to have growth and prosperity for all Americans, then government must become a neutral referee.

But until we get Conservatives in State Capitals & Washington D.C. to consider such legislation, unions will continue to hold small businesses, individual workers, and taxpayers hostage.

Glen also talks about the GOP’s "Pledge to America," the Democrats broken commitment on extending the Bush tax rates, Ahmadinejad’s outrageous UN speech, and some of this week’s Obamacare headlines.

Bob Fragasso, President and Founder of Fragasso Financial, joins Glen in the studio with some insights on the economy, the stock market, and personal finances. Mike Kelly, Conservative GOP candidate for Congress (PA-3) also joins Glen with some campaign updates. If elected, Mike promises to vote for low tax rates, less government spending, and to repeal Obamacare.
